Lens flares are pointless in games unless the character on screen has something glass or plastic in front of their eyes like Crysis or Halo. Its stupid when there are lens flares when playing as a character with no visor or helmet on, they must have glass eyes lol.
I agree man. Like when they have the water drip effect. Water doesn't drip from our eyes as if they were a pane of glass. I even see some third person games do this for no reason. It takes me out of the experience a bit because then I'm thinking "so I'm the director of a movie?". I like being completely immersed in the experience and escape, not feel like the cameraman.
I'm more bothered by particles on the screen. Seriously, clean your lens. Why does the camera need to be so dirty. http://www.dsogaming.com/wp... All it does is hinder visibility. @Unztayble Speaking of water, I like the way Far Cry 3 handled that whenever you come out of the water.
The Screenshots looks great, really.
Honestly I think the majority of these screenshots look bad. Enough with the bloom and blur. It's horrendous
Is it me or are these pics underwhelming? I see nothing special here.
They are simulating camera lens effects.
Wow makes me wanna go play Crysis 1 PC with the Virtual Reality High Texture Mod. Great Pics.....now make a good game that looks like this!
we're looking at you dice
First they arent stupid. Pepole can be stupid. Second they are there to add some fidelity to unreallistic rendering. They make the world feel more natural somewhat masking artificialness.
They called it CRYengine for a reason. It makes you cry and go blind with all the shiny effects. LMAO
It looks amazing! Why hasn't this been added into the Wii U section? Wii U supports Cryengine. http://www.nintendolife.com...
Cute man, very cute. It's not my fault that Crytek supports the system.
If we can get those in a proper resolution it would be great.
Right click to open on a separate window/tab instead of left clicking the pics.
I wouldn't say 1280 X 800 is an acceptable resolution to show off screens of an engine. Giving the processing power that is available to devs these day I would be expecting at least 1080. Higher would be better.
True. But I think the main they were trying to show in these pics are the lens effects cause it's hard to see everything else in some of these pics lol
Wow! Nuff said.
Deep Down and The Last Guardian will crush this shit...
Where do you dumb fanboys come from? We get it, you only own Sony systems. Refuse to accept the idea of PC or Xbox having better looking games. Blind fanboys are missing out on the good stuff.
No, there is no irony. He is completely correct. The mindless fanboys are the ones missing out. Their loyalty to piece of plastic or a multi-billion dollar company is pathetic. Good games can be found on every platform.
The last guardian never heard of it.... Oh yeah thats the game announced way back in 08 that sony fans keep on their exclusive list to make it seem that they have more exclusives. Nothing but vaporware.
Are you kidding me ?. So ps3 don't have exclusives now ?. Don't be a fanboy . Ps3 have a lot , just look at this year exclusives : Ni no kuni/God of war ascension/The last of us/Beyond:two souls/GT6 and many others. These screenshots are good but not mind blowing to me. Even if it is , we will never get a great gameplay with that graphics on this engine so it's pointless, history proves this.
Those images are beautiful, my Geforce Titan is begging for Cryteks next fps
You seriously bought a Titan? GTX 780 is only 2-3 fps behind it and can be overclocked to be faster than Titan, it was just a rip off stop gap like the Mars cards from before. Crytek games are also well known to run not that great even on good hardware.
Bought it when it got released, Crysis 2 + 3 run perfectly find on my rig on extreme settings.
Also you said something about the 780 being faster when overclocked? http://www.overclock.net/t/...
Sorry, but I just don't see what's so wonderful about those.
Like your flag but that's not valid anymore "Eendrag maak mag!"
Die goeie ou dae!!!
There's effects and there's too much effects... There's gameplay and there's interactive art... The effects are too much, Tone it down a little and its fine.
The future is going to be pretty cool. In 5 years we'll probably be able to go into the matrix.
looks like J.J. Abrams was working on this engine ;)
Personally I can't stand anything that blocks my view of the game, I never finished BF3 SP because of all the blinding light effects, I got tired of getting killed by people I couldn't see. Just because you can do something doesn't necessarily mean you should.
